Metallics are so back in for summer, be sure to check out the new Essie Mirror Metallics Collection coming soon to stores! I think my favorites will be “penny talk”, which is described as an incandescent copper, but I feel like it’s more of rose gold, which I love! I also love “Blue Rhapsody”, this is described as a heavy metal blue, it’s more of a silver blue but I love it!

Are you excited for this collection as much as I am? I love metallic colors, they are just as much fun as all the bright colors that are in for the season!

Nail polish storage has always been very bland for me, I just stick it in a sterlite storage bin, and it’s out of sight out of mind, but I like to look at my nail polish or I wont look at it, so I was trying to find a new way to store it, I like for my nail polish to be standing up so the polish doesn’t settle and ruin. This was a hard task without spending a fortune on a nail polish rack, I came across this super cute blue distressed shelve while taking the garbage out, I’m assuming someone was just going to through it away, but it was in perfect shape so I snacthed it, and hung it on my bathroom wall forever ago with nothing in it, and today I had the brillant idea to put my nail polish on it!

 So I had the perfect plan, I wanted to put a row of nail polish on each shelve however, I did not realize how much nail polish I had, lets just say way to many to only have 3 rows, as I actually ended up needing 6 rows. I re did my organizing about  times before I liked the way it looked and decided it was fine the way it was.

 This storage probably won’t last very long since I am always changing the way I organize things, but for now this works great, I like they are all standing up, that I can see each color, and they all have a place.

How do you store your nail polish? Leave your posts and comments below I love reading them!

Forget about the bag, the shoes, and lip gloss. At the moment, the most fashion forward accessory is your nails. This summer is all about the bright neons, pastels, and light neutrals are always in season! I went through my collection and pulled out a few of my favorite shades that fit into the 3 catagoreys I choose to focus on for this post about summer nail trends, because of course there are more nail trends than the 3 I am going over!

I will always be down a few nail tutorials soon, I’m thinking maybe once a week, I’m very excited I want to get a new camera to for better pictures! I’m also hoping to get a small work station set up so I have a place of my own to work on projects and blog posts!
